Colleen Hartland has organised a series of community meetings to discuss the impact of Westlink through our neighbourhoods. She has been a strong advocate for our community and continues to say NO to westlink because it is an inefficient, polluting and uneconomic plan which will only lead to increased traffic. Come and join us in standing up to the Brumby governments car and truck plan.
The Greens have a real transport plan which will deliver fast efficient public transport and cost a fraction of this proposed road!

Yesterday, May 31, the international community was shocked when in international waters, --tens of thousands of miles off the coast of Gaza-- nearly one hundred Israeli paratroops jumped from helicopters, in the wee small hours, recklessly shooting on hundreds of peaceful people from various nationalities, causing them --according to press reports-- no less than 20 dead and scores of injured.
I think we should use the experience of South Africa, where we know that the sanctions had a great impact. It took time, but they had an impact. We need to see Israel for the Apartheid that for what it really has been doing to the Palestinian people for the last 40 years.
